Services provided:

Social Care Alba is a Care Commission registered Care at Home and Housing Support Service operating throughout central Scotland.  It has been established specifically to address identified gaps in the provision of social care within the adult care sector which have been highlighted by service users,carers and other stakeholders. These are mainly that:

  • Support be provided by qualified staff
  • Support be derived from a small core group of staff rather than a large pool
  • Visits be longer and more personalised incorporating more 24/7 hours input and `live-in` care
  • Support incorporate more intensive personal care i.e. peg feeding, catheter care
  • Support reflect more the `Personalisation`agenda  and `Social Model of Disability`
  • Social inclusion be maximised
  • Respite provision be accommodated
  • Via their Participation and Quality Assurance groups stakeholders should play an integral part
  • Robust auditing mechanisms be in place.

Drawing upon the above principles which are consistent with the respective National Standards and via their managerial team which draws upon the disciplines of social work,nursing,regulation,training and business SCA  feels it offers solutions to:

  • Helping people return home from hospital more quickly.
  • Preventing unnecessary admissions to hospitals or care homes.
  • Maintaining people within their own community for longer.
  • Utilising telecare options.
